Interested in sailing an Etchells with your mates ?

Four young sailors sailing an Etchells keelboat upwind

The RYA and the UK Etchells Class Association are to continue their partnership directed at young sailors moving out of Junior & Youth classes. This opportunity is designed to give talented young sailors the experience of top level one design keelboat racing, giving them the resources and training to push their sailing to the highest level.  It is available for 18-24 year olds,

and is particularly aimed at graduating RYA Youth Programme sailors and British Keelboat Academy members although applications from other sailors, including those from clubs and Universities are welcomed. Whilst, applications are invited from individuals, those from pre-formed teams of three or four sailors are strongly encouraged (the class maximum weight limit is 285kg so competitive teams will need to be as close as possible to that).
